This was always my assumption. It is *possible* but highly unlikely. Especially given the way I imagine the injection molds to be built for discs.

I remember reading a post here from someone claiming to know a lot about disc molding who said the nose spacer thing was made up.

Negative, Ghost Rider.

Pages 39 and 42 are the only ones that even mention the word "spacer" and Dave responds to both questions - never denying spacers aren't a thing. Not saying that they do exist, but I am saying DaveD didn't deny them either.

DaveD ALSO didn't say they exist. So we get to both be right for now Ghost Rider

Where's Discette? She would probably know.

The RDG Ptero is the Daredevil Timberwolf
https://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118726

That said, within Daredevil, they make several "molds" out of the same mold.

For example, the timberwolf is only available flex performance plastic in the upper mid weight range (166-175), but the swift fox is only available in their grip performance plastic in the 155-160 range, and the wolverine is only available in their high performance plastic in the 172-175 range. It's the same disc mold, but they sell them as totally different models because they fly differently.

But the OP wanted to know about cross brand mold re-use, and Reptilian absolutely made the Ptero out of the timberwolf.

I like to think of it like the Toyobaru BRZ/FR-S/86

The Sabertooth/velociRaptor are the same as well.

Does this count? I mean Innova counts them as both different with speed of disc on the 3 top being faster and the same mold for saving money on testing $$ purposes at the same time making this very confusing.
